Fetal Alcohol Syndrome

522 words, 3 pages

Intro Sample...


This postponement of rights is an obstruction of freedoms, freedoms that are the building blocks of a democratic society. What’s more, there are health benefits that can be gained from the consumption of alcohol that would be banned from responsible mothers such as a reduction of one’s risks of developing heart disease, peripheral vascular disease and intermittent claudication. As well as reduction of one’s risk of dying of a heart attack, lowering one’s risk of gallstones, and a possibility of both reducing one’s risk of strokes and diabetes. For example, a study by Ruth Little and Clarence Weinberg concluded that there were less stillbirths and less losses of the fetus due to premature births among women who consumed a moderate level of alcohol.

Conclusively, women should be given the right to decide for themselves whether to consume alcohol while pregnant. The birth of a disabled child because of over drinking will only bring unnecessary problems to a mother and education should be provided to all in order to ensure that both the pros and cons are recognized by all who wish to become pregnant.
